Aunt Skinny was one of a kind. A very precious soul. Always encouraging, with a heart of gold and such unconditional love for all of her family. So many times during my youth, I would just drop by the house to talk with her, and then as an adult with a wife and children, I would make it a point to stop by to see her when I was in town from Ohio. When she opened the door, and saw me and my family standing there, she would always greet us with her trademark welcome....Awwww Lord!!! To see her love on my family was a wonderful blessing that I will always cherish. Rest in peace, dear Aunt. My condolences to Tank and family. With fond memories, Ronnie, Colleen, Marques, and Jonathan.
